UPDATE: Wednesday July 29, 12.21pm: A video featuring Dr Stella Immanuel alongside colleagues from America’s Frontline Doctors making false and dubious claims related to the coronavirus was removed by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube after going viral online on Monday July 27
Dr Stella Immanuel of Houston GP in the United States while standing with a number of people behind her on the steps of Capitol Hill in Washington said “…I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID”.
She went on to say that she had successfully treated more than 350 people with coronavirus using hydroxychloroquine.
Dr Stella Immanuel said she went to medical school in Nigeria where she treated malaria patients with the same drug President Donald Trump said could treat or prevent Coronavirus.
“Patients that have diabetes, patients that have high blood pressure, patients that have asthma, old people … I think my oldest patient is 92 … 87 year olds. And the result has been the same. I put them on hydroxychloroquine, I put them on zinc, I put them on Zithromax, and they’re all well.”
She further said that she put herself, her staff and other doctors she knew on hydroxychloroquine for prevention of COVID-19.
“We see patients,10 to 15 COVID patients, everyday. We give them breathing treatments. We only wear surgical mask. None of us has gotten sick. It works.” she said.
Dr Immanuel said she did not need to do a double-blind study because it was unethical.
“All of you doctors that are waiting for data, if six months down the line you actually found out that this data shows that this medication works, how about your patients that have died?,” she said.
“We don’t need to die. There is a cure for COVID.”
